Facelift surgery tightens the skin and adjusts the muscles of the face to remove wrinkles and provide a more rested and youthful appearance.
A facelift can improve the following signs of aging:
- Sagging in the midface
- Deep creases below the lower eyelids
- Creases from the nose to the corners of the mouth
- Wrinkles on the neck
What a Facelift Does Not Do
As we age, our skin loses collagen, and our faces lose their youthful plumpness. Unfortunately, a facelift cannot restore lost facial volume nor does it address signs of aging in the upper face. Even after facelift surgery, patients may be left with:
- Hollows under the eyes
- Sunken cheeks
- Depressed scars
- Wrinkles on the forehead
- Furrows between the eyebrows
- Crow’s feet
Injectable Fillers Restore Volume
Injectable fillers can be performed in addition to facelift surgery or as a stand-alone procedure to fill out facial wrinkles and supplement volume. They can smooth wrinkles such as nasolabial folds and fill hollows and depressions. Injectable filler treatments are quick and painless, but repeat treatments are necessary to maintain results.
BOTOX® Cosmetic Rejuvenates the Upper Face
BOTOX® Cosmetic can also be performed in conjunction with a facelift or as a stand-alone procedure. BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable botulinum toxin A formula that inhibits the transmission of nerve impulses, which relaxes the muscles and smooths wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic is ideal for treating crow’s feet, vertical furrows between the brows, and horizontal wrinkles across the forehead. Repeat treatments are necessary to maintain results.
